    I worked at Weston Foods full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    - great central location in Etobicoke - well known Canadian company with rich history

    Cons

    - extremely political company with favourtism. Need to satisfy senior leaders ego to get ahead. - restructuring caused many new people one company to join and has become a boys club. - toxic working work coworkers who are all out to get you. - too many directors and not enough actual people doing work and being recognized. - leaders dont walk the walk. All lip service on values. - difficult to work with... retailers due to Weston name. Weston family makes decisions that hurt the business and are not logical.
